Life can suck. Especially when you have to work to pay the bills and that interfers with having fun.
Since the last time I posted, I've joined a group and played 4E for the first time. I've realized that Friday nights aren't good - I'm too tired after a long week of work and coaching my daughter's LAX team. Discussed having the group move to another day - the DM's wife wasn't happy with Friday nights either as her schedule on Fridays and Saturdays interferred. Then we decided to switch to Saturdays and before we could play a Saturday game, I realized that my wife had a problem with a weekly Saturday early afternoon game.
So I had to drop the 4E group.
I have to say that my only complaint about D&D 4E is the non-human-centric nature of the setting. I don't think one of the 7 characters were human and I also believe there were only two characters that shared a race. The sad part about the two elves, only one liked being and elf and the other was shape-shifted as a dog most of the time.
This is one of the reasons why I don't care for high fantasy too much any more.
I just purchased Fantasy Grounds II the other night and will spend some time learning it this weekend and post more shortly.
